History has witnessed countless acts of inhuman cruelty. Check out the latest film, ‘The Kashmir Files’, which sheds light on the tragedy faced by Kashmiri pundits who have been driven from their homes in the most brutal way.
Another story of this heartbreaking tragedy has emerged from the interior of India, in what is called “God’s country” – Kerala.
This story will be directed by Vipul Amrutlal Shah and will be written and directed by Sudipto Sen who will tell the horrific story of women trafficking in Kerala. The film is titled “The History of Kerala”.
The filmmaker released a short video to announce his project. In the video clip, we can see a state official talking about the ongoing abduction and trafficking of thousands of young Kerala women. Watch it here:
According to the latest statistics, nearly 32,000 women have been trafficked so far and this is the dominant danger currently facing women in Kerala. According to reports, this is a covert operation carried out to convert Kerala into an Islamic state
Speaking of ‘History of Kerala’, Vipul Shah said, “This story is a human tragedy, which will shake you to your core. When Sudipto came to tell me about it with his research of more than 3-4 years, I was in tears at the first encounter itself. It was the very day I decided to make this film. I am happy that we are now moving forward with the film and hope to make a very real, unbiased and true account of events.
Writer, director Sudipto Sen adds, “According to a recent survey, since 2009 nearly 32,000 girls from Kerala and Mangalore from Hindu and Christian communities have been converted to Islam and most of them end up land in Syria, Afghanistan and other ISIS countries and Haqqani Influential Areas.While accepting these facts, the government hardly envisages a definitive plan of action against such huge international conspiracies led by IS-influenced groups.”
Kerala and Mangalore remain the epicenter of the most recent massacres in the subcontinent. Even so, the NIA is only investigating 99 cases compared to 32,000, the actual number of disappearances.
The director also added that while they were doing their research, they came across the mothers of the “runaway” (disappeared) girls. Some of these girls could be found in prisons in Afghanistan and Syria. Some are cold leads and no one knows where the girls are. Most of the girls who disappeared were married to ISIS terrorists and now have children with them.
Sudipto Sen said the film they are making is to give voice to the cries of mothers who have lost their daughters.
